Drain Cleaning: A Vital Service

Each turn of the calendar brings about new changes and presents us with some familiar challenges. You have made resolutions such as going to the gym, getting rid of bad habits, quitting smoking, going back to school and much more.

At Drainmen Plumbing, we wonder, when was the last time you had your drain cleaned? Although it is not a popular item on your annual resolutions list, we believe it is vitally important. As plumbing experts in Collegeville, PA, we will fix your drain problem and tell you what you need to know about drain cleaning.

Sewage System

Your sewage system runs off waste removal pipes that feed directly into the main sewer line and then to the city sewer. The pipes in your house take the waste from your kitchen’s sink and your bathroom’s toilet, sink and shower and direct it to the sewer. Unfortunately, your sewage system can fall victim to clogs as sludge and dirt build up, keeping waste from exiting your home.

Signs

Luckily, there are signs that can indicate you need a drain cleaning. Serious issues such as clogs and pipe corrosion can be avoided by paying attention to these signs. Clogs can be caused by hair, soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, food, grease and much more.

  • Backflow
  • Overflowing or empty toilet
  • Foul stench
  • Low water pressure
  • Gradual draining
  • Gurgling noises

Don’t avoid these indicators as heeding them could save you the high cost of repairs for your drain.

Not Cutting It

You have probably used a plunger or household chemicals to remedy this problem, but these solutions simply don’t cut it. A plunger only provides a quick fix, while household chemicals can harm your pipes, skin, clothing and the environment.
